A pop-up shop selling small press comics?

What’s that then?

It’s a one-day pop-up shop selling small press comics… duh!

BRIGHTON Saturday May 13, 2017

part of the Brighton Artists Open Houses festival
(selling comics to comics readers and a whole new audience)
in a family-friendly pizza pub

The Hanover, Queens Park Road, Brighton BN2 9ZB

map here (buses 18, 21 and 23 stop outside)

We have more than 50 great creators offering over 150 individual pieces for your delight and delectation
PLEASE REMEMBER: some of these artists will be at ComicPopUp, but it’s an art shop not a con, so many will only be there in book form!

Live on the day:
SEE how comics are made as the amazing Zara Slattery works on her current project ~ before your very eyes!
THRILL to the experience of making a giant comic with the exceptional cartoonist Jaime Huxtable ~ you’ll be the envy of all your friends when your artwork is combined into an amazing strip on his website!
POSE for your own portrait by Manga greats Inko Ai Takita and Kutsuwada Chie ~ great original art made just for you!

Can’t make it on the day?
For a limited time after the event, we will be able to supply comics by mail order while stocks last, so please ask… but you can always buy direct from the artists below (and get the benefit of seeing any new work they have for sale)
